2008 journal article

Do secondary compounds inhibit microbial- and insect-mediated leaf breakdown in a tropical rainforest stream, Costa Rica?

Oecologia, 155(2), 311–323.

Contributors: M. Ardón* & C. Pringle*

author keywords: decomposition; tannins; lignin; ergosterol; fungi; bacteria; collector-gatherers
MeSH headings : Animals; Biomass; Costa Rica; Elements; Insecta; Lignin / analysis; Phenols / analysis; Plant Leaves / chemistry; Plant Leaves / microbiology; Plant Leaves / parasitology; Rivers / microbiology; Rivers / parasitology; Tannins / analysis
TL;DR: It was found that secondary compounds were rapidly leached and were less important than structural compounds in determining breakdown rates, suggesting that insects did not play an important role in breakdown. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

Differences in sediment organic matter composition and PAH weathering between non-vegetated and recently vegetated fuel oiled sediments

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PHYTOREMEDIATION, 10(6), 473–485.

By: S. Gregory n & E. Nichols n

author keywords: polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH); C-14 accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS); Phragmites; cattails; willow trees
MeSH headings : Biodegradation, Environmental; Fuel Oils / analysis; Geologic Sediments / chemistry; Plant Roots; Poaceae / metabolism; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons / chemistry; Salix / metabolism; Soil Pollutants / chemistry; Soil Pollutants / metabolism; Typhaceae / metabolism
TL;DR: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon attenuation in contaminated field sediments after only 2 years of plant growth is examined to hypothesized that bulk sediment and humin fractions with measurable increases in plant organic matter content would show measurable changes to PAH attenuation as indicated by more weathered PAH diagnostic ratios or reduced PAH concentrations.

author keywords: agricultural biotechnology; contrarian science; dissident science; genetically modified crops; transgene flow
MeSH headings : Biotechnology / history; Dissent and Disputes / history; History, 20th Century; History, 21st Century; Transgenes
TL;DR: The controversy over the presence of transgenic DNA in Mexican maize in the early 2000s is used to point to a processual model of scientific dissent, based on understanding scientific dissent as a set of heterogeneous practices. (via Semantic Scholar)
